Campbell Patch: San Jose Celebrates the National Day of Service and Remembrance

A beautiful “Day of Service and Remembrance” was held to provide service and honor first responders, elected officials and leaders of local nonprofits on the grounds of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Chapel on Commanche Drive in San Jose. There were projects to tie blankets for needy children, cards for the sick, crayons for children in hospitals and many others. A bike drive resulted in many bicycles donated to Good Karma Bikes, who donate refurbished bikes to the those in need.

Hometown Hero awards were presented by Mayor Matt Mahan to the San Jose Police and Fire Departments. Certificates of Thanks were presented to local elected representatives: Mayor Mahan, City Council member Arjun Batra, State Senator Dave Cortese.
